Figure is a modern compensation platform that helps companies centralize their data, set their pay structure, benchmark themselves against similar companies in realtime, and communicate total rewards to their candidates and employees. Figure streamlines painful and complicated manual compensation processes into simple, secure, and collaborative workflows - say goodbye to spreadsheets. Our mission is to bring equity and transparency to compensation -- for companies, employees, and candidates.
Why join us? Figure is looking for software engineers to join our founding team. More than anything, we seek individuals with strong coding fundamentals. We work in a highly collaborative environment. Our team is still small, and people wear many hats. You will have the opportunity to jump between engineering, product, customer support, and design - participating in every part of the business from idea to production.
Our stack * PostgreSQL database * Ruby on Rails backend * Graphql API * React / Apollo frontend
Key responsibilities * Design, build and deploy features end to end. You are responsible for breaking down high level features into tasks that can ship to prod. * Code quickly and test thoroughly - Maintain the balance between velocity and code health. * Work on a team - Collaborate with other engineers to design and architect features. Know when to ask for help when you are stuck. * Write well-documented, clean, testable code
Requirements * You have 3+ years of engineering experience, and have built and scaled products. * You are a faster learner - You can readily learn most technologies as you go. * You understand the business implications beyond engineering - You are not just coding cool stuff. You understand the balance between engineering, speed, and the bottom line. * Strong work ethic and willingness to do what it takes to deliver results * Entrepreneurial, with a high tolerance for ambiguity
Bonus Points * Comfortable integrating with 3rd party APIs that are sometimes not well documented * Experience with data privacy/security * You’ve built side projects from idea to MVP * Experience working with or building HR/Compensation tools
Benefits * Generous equity package * 100% health + dental + vision * Unlimited vacations * $5,000 for your own setup (laptop, desk, chair)

Ownership and drive. Everyone at the company is fairly autonomous and cares a lot about product, and wants to be involved in all aspects of product development.
We don't take ourselves too seriously, we joke around a lot, hang out virtually together frequently, and are planning events for everyone to come together in person.
